On America, Protesting, Flag Burning, and How the Left and the Right Need to Come Together, Now.


I was in the crowd, in Washington, D. C., when the American flag was burned at the March 20, 2010 protest against America’s ongoing wars. When the flag was burned, a collective GROAN went up from EVERYONE around me. Most of whom were on the Left, not the Right.


I was also locked-up in the DC Jail with the guy who, although meaning well, was unwise enough to burn the flag that day. We argued the point (i.e., is flag burning wise or foolish?) from that Saturday afternoon until we appeared in court on Monday afternoon.


I know he meant well but burning the American flag is like shooting yourself, and your movement, in the foot, I told him. We don’t want to DESTROY the symbol of America because America has become evil, we want to RESTORE honor and dignity to America and to it’s national symbol as well. There’s a HUGE difference. He also burned his hand pretty badly, which is terrible, and hurts like anything, but, considering what he did, I thought it was God’s way of letting him know that what he did was a very unwise thing; sort of a painful reminder, for a few days, to give him pause, so that he could think about his actions that day.


I’ve told him, since then, that I know why he did what he did and that I respect him for doing so, because he was being true to himself, at the time, and he could not have done otherwise. He was angry and, understandably, very frustrated. I’ve done a lot of foolish things too in my life, especially when I’ve been angry and frustrated, so I am certainly in no place to cast stones at him or anyone else for acting foolishly. We all live and learn from our many mistakes, if we are wise enough to do so.


I hope that he and others on the Left realize how counter productive flag burning actions are and that they will not repeat this man’s mistake, because we don’t have the time, now, for such foolishness. We need to come together, Left and Right, before it’s too late and we have no nation left to restore.


Don't fall for Washington's tricks. They want us pitted against one another, because they know we will beat them when we come together, so they do their best to set us at each other's throats. I believe the Right and the Left agree more than we realize. When we unite against Washington, the American People will win America back. Unless we unite we never will take America back. America will continue to spiral out of control, fueled by more hate, more anger, and more violence, until we plunge into the dark abyss of chaos and anarchy.


We need to stop name calling and start getting to know one another, because we are more alike than we are different, and we can all learn from one another, can we not?


As the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, once said ““Men often hate each other because they fear each other; they fear each other because they don't know each other; they don't know each other because they can not communicate; they can not communicate because they are separated.”

An Urgent Appeal From Prof. Bill Quigley: Our brother, Father Roy Bourgeois, needs your immediate solidarity!

From: Bill Quigley, Attorney for Father Roy Bourgeois, Quigley@loyno.edu

7214 St. Charles Avenue, Campus Box 902, New Orleans, LA 70118

August 8, 2011

Dear Friends:

Our brother, Father Roy Bourgeois, needs your immediate solidarity. The Maryknoll community has taken another step towards expulsion of Father Roy for speaking out in favor of the ordination of women priests. Father Roy has said that, as a matter of conscience, he must speak out against the exclusion of women from the priesthood both because it defies faith and reason and because the exclusion is rooted in sexism. Despite the threats to expel him, Father Roy refuses to recant.

It is time for people of good will to take action. Please contact Father Ed Dougherty, the Superior General of Maryknoll, and ask him not to expel Father Roy Bourgeois for advocating for women priests. Here is how to contact Father Dougherty:

Father Edward Dougherty

Maryknoll Fathers

PO Box 303

Maryknoll, NY 10545-0303

Fax: 914.944.3600 or Phone: 914.941.7590

Email: mklcouncil@maryknoll.org

I am one of the lawyers on the team working with Father Roy. Below is a link to the letter Father Roy recently received from Maryknoll. It is the official second and perhaps final notice threatening to immediately expel him from the community.

Below is a link to Father Roy’s response to Maryknoll. You can read it and see where he stands. His letter is a simple direct invitation to dialogue about inclusion of women in the priesthood and a call for the protection of conscience – key foundation principles in any institution which respects human dignity. Contrast his letter with one from Maryknoll and judge which best reflects the spirit of hope, justice, respect and love.

Father Roy's Letter to Maryknoll:

Maryknoll Letter to Father Roy:

https://salsa.democracyinaction.org/o/727/images/Maryknoll.pdf

Father Roy has been a priest for 39 years and a member of Maryknoll for 44 years. We cannot allow Maryknoll, pushed hard no doubt by fundamentalist forces of the institutional church in Rome, to silence a prophetic voice of conscience and justice. Galileo was silenced by the church in 1633 for saying the earth revolves around the sun and they did not admit their error and apologize until 360 years later in 1992. Truth and justice cannot be expected to wait that long. Hundreds of priests already publicly support Father Roy’s right to speak his conscience. Thousands more women and men across the world support this issue and Father Roy as well. Maryknoll cannot and should not be party to a modern day silencing.

Thank you for your action and solidarity. Please send me a copy of what you sent Maryknoll and I will make sure Father Roy knows of your support.

Peace and justice,

Bill Quigley

The US Government is Criminal; Therefore Illegitimate


The US Congress does not represent the People, it represents special interests. Period. There is no democracy in America. Our vote counts for nothing. In fact the voting system itself is rigged, from special interest monies to electronic voting machine fraud. We have been disenfranchised and there is nothing we can do about it except abolish the current government and institute new government, as per the Declaration of Independence. Today's headline states we have lost our triple A credit rating and I am not at all surprised. Things will only get worse before they get better and things will only get better when good people stand up to the evil–and there is no other word for this but evil–in Washington and take our nation back for the people.

For example, there is PLENTY of work to be done in America, despite what Washington says. Cut off trade with China and make our products at home. Light manufacturing in the USA would be a boon both to blighted urban ghettos and dying rural towns. Our highways, roads, and bridges are in desperate need of repair but all Washington needs to do is to federalize all US and Interstate highways and hire the crews (at prevailing, living, wages) to get the job done. The reason Washington won’t do this is because they use the federal highway funding to the states as a way to extort the states to do their will regarding issues not related to highways at all. End the wars, which cost $1 billion per day, according to what I have been told, personally, by a US Army colonel at the US Army War College.

People have completely lost faith and confidence in the US government and it is beginning to show. This, too, will only grow worse. The truth about 9/11 is coming out, that our own government along with Israel (Washington’s most special interest “group”) perpetrated 9/11 and blamed it on the Muslims. This, too, we have from a source at the US Army War College, and it is 100% certain. Washington is collapsing and we need to prepare for the worst.



*Legal Disclaimer: Because the Montgomery County, Maryland Police, as well as the Pennsylvania State Police and the US Marshals have already expressed an interest in and a concern with me due to my past and because of my ongoing involvement with the Summer of Mercy and our ongoing work to drive late-term abortionist Leroy Carhart out of business in Germantown, Maryland, the image accompanying this brief paper should in no way be interpreted as a threat of violence against Carhart or anyone else. The image is simply one that came up when I did a Google image search for “criminal government”. I have never endorsed shooting or killing abortionists and I never will. As far as the US government and treason goes, federal law says traitors hang. Personally, I am consistently prolife, meaning I am against all unjust killing, especially state sponsored killing, which includes unjust wars, abortion, and capital punishment.

America - Why the Left and the Right Need to Come Together and Learn From One Another

I predicted the so-called “debt crisis” to be the final death blow to the TEA Party and I was wrong about that, but I was correct about the whole debt ceiling "crisis" being all about the TEA Party, which it was. But where I thought the TEA Party would fail it has succeeded, which all Americans should take note of.

Although some, few, high profile TEA Partiers may take government assistance, the vast majority of Americans and TEA Partiers do not and people are sick of being fleeced, or robbed, of their hard earned money. Sick unto death. This fact cannot and should not be ignored, especially by the Left.

There are good reasons for why TEA Party people are so angry. Most are working class folks, which the left SAY they support. How many prominent leftists are white rather than blue collar workers? How many leftists live in urban as opposed to rural America? Rural America is, for the most part "America" itself. I know, because I have travelled the entire nation many times over. Large urban areas are few and far between, except for the Northeast.

If the Right is 50% correct on issues and 50% wrong the Left has the 50% correct which the Right needs and the Right has the 50% correct which the Left needs. For the most part, the most vocal of the Left hate Jesus, hate (traditional) America, especially the flag, and hate life (i.e., pro-abortion). This is a losing "strategy" for the Left to cling to. Period. America will never become the socialist utopia the far Left hopes for. No utopias exist and it's dangerous to presume that they can (think: Communist China, today).

The Right, especially the religious Right, needs to listen to the wisdom of the Left on many issues, especially the issue of America's ongoing wars. The Pentagon and its ongoing wars is where most of our tax monies are currently going. The Left tells us the truth but the Right refuses to listen: the entire “War on Terror” is a sham and we should not allow ourselves to be taken by media/government propaganda that blames “Islamofacism” for creating terror and for perpetrating 9/11. Israeli Mossad, with US government assistance, did that and it’s foolish for otherwise intelligent people to believe the official--and officially unscientific--government mythology of 9/11.

Our troops are losing more than life and limb fighting the “War on Terror” overseas, they are losing theirs souls and their humanity, which is far worse. A man can be fitted for an artificial limb but not for an artificial soul. Science can't fix that, and neither can the VA. It's up to us, the American people, to demand an end to the misuse and abuse of our troops; to bring them home and keep them home, now.

The Right needs to listen to Left on the issue of caring for the needs of others as well. Although the Right is correct that it’s not the federal governments job to bail out bankrupt citizens any more than bankrupt banks the Right needs to listen when the Left tells us that we need a better vision for the future of America; a vision of hope and progress, not a “vision” of continued despair and maintaining the status quo or worse: regressing toward become an even less humane society. It’s true that a man should be willing to “pull himself up by his own bootstraps” but this tired shibboleth presupposes the man has a pair of boots to begin with, doesn’t it?

America - On Coming Together As A Nation


Americans need to unite for a purpose. A purpose we can all agree upon. Left or Right, Catholic or Atheist, TEA Party or Socialist, all Americans do agree, I think, upon one thing, at least: That the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. led a successful movement for positive social change in America, which was founded upon fundamental American principles, that increased liberty, freedom, and dignity for black Americans.


Dr. King chose to establish his social movement upon the bedrock of American principles, which are outlined in the Declaration of Independence: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” See: http://www.constitution.org/usdeclar.htm


“In a sense we have come to our nation's capital to cash a check. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men would be guaranteed the inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” See: http://www.mlkonline.net/dream.html


Is there anyone in America, on the Left or the Right, who disagrees with what the Declaration says, here? Is there anyone in America, on the Left or the Right, who disagrees with Dr. King’s having used this most fundamental of American principles?


To watch Dr. King’s speech: “I Have a Dream”, please see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PbUtL_0vAJk&feature=player_embedded


To read my many essays concerning Dr. King’s use of the Declaration of Independence and its Natural Law foundation, please see: http://ajmacdonaldjr.wordpress.com/tag/martin-luther-king-jr/

Establishing Peace and Justice in America


When it comes to protests, especially protests against the wars, I have two (2) MAJOR concerns, which I see NO antiwar or social justice group addressing: 1) what to do the day after the protest; and 2) the issue of abortion.

The second issue first. It's illogical and irrational to accept that anyone or any group who supports abortion really cares about ending the wars. Unjustified killing, whether it be in Iraq or Afghanistan or an American mother's womb is, after all, murder; and if such people and groups wish to continue the brutal, unjustifiable slaughter of the weakest and most vulnerable amongst us then they have absolutely no intellectual footing upon which to stand and no moral high ground whatsoever from which to preach against the brutal, unjustifiable slaughter that is America's ongoing wars. Period. The problem, as I see it, is that, for these people and these groups, JUSTICE has been REMOVED from the PEACE equation, yet America can never be restored to peace and safety without addressing the issue of justice first and foremost.

The first issue, regarding what to do the day after the protest, should the protest succeed, is crucial. Does the protest movement have any plans concerning what to do the day after the protest succeeds? And what, exactly, does the protest movement consider success? Should a large direct action protest in Washington ever succeed in pushing those in power OUT of power this group needs detailed plans concerning what to do next. We don't want to end up like Egypt, without a plan, and there is A LOT to plan regarding this.

The Summer of Justice 2012 - DC addresses BOTH of these important issues, although the details of the first issue are being worked out now. Justice means exactly what Dr. King said it means: "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere". Abortion is the grossest of all injustices and until it's dealt with, properly, justly, there is NO HOPE of saving America or of ending the unjust wars. Period.

A Simple, Biblical End Times Timeline

[Click on image to enlarge] 





A Last Days End Times Timeline According to the Bible
© 2011 A. J. MacDonald, Jr.

According to the Bible, at the first coming of Christ, Satan was cast down from heaven to the earth (see: Revelation 12:1-12). Jerusalem is overthrown (70 A. D.) and the temple destroyed (just as Christ predicted it would be in Luke 21:20) by the Roman armies, which surrounded Jerusalem (i.e., “the abomination that makes desolate” and compare Luke 21:20 with Matthew 24:15). Upon the execution (by the Romans) of this final, official, covenantal rejection of Israel by Christ (see: Revelation 18:1-24 and Matthew 23:38) Satan is bound for 1,000 years (Greek: “a long time”; like us saying: “a gazillion years” see: Revelation 20:1-6) and the kingdom is taken away from Israel and given to the Gentiles, who will bring forth fruit (see: Matthew 21:43-44), until the time of the Gentiles is fulfilled and Jerusalem is to be “trodden underfoot by the Gentiles until the time of the Gentiles is fulfilled (Luke 21:24). The time of the Gentiles is fulfilled only when the gospel has gone into (saturated) all the earth (see: Matthew 24:14 and Habakkuk 2:14) and the Gentiles have turned away from and rejected Christ. Then Satan will be loosed in order to deceive all the Gentile nations and gather them together against the only “people of God” who remain on earth “the Jews” who, because they have faithfully kept their scriptures and traditions, await their soon-coming messiah (see: Romans 11) who will appear and destroy those nations that have been deceived to gather against God’s chosen ones, the heirs of the promise God made to Abraham (see: Genesis 12: 1-3 and Revelation 20:7-10). The living will be changed and the dead will rise (see: 2 Thessalonians 2) to be judged at Christ’s return and the Final Judgment occurs (see: Revelation 20:11-15). The old earth and heaven pass away and a new heaven and a new earth appear (see Revelation 21) much like a seed that must first die before it can become what it is ultimately supposed to be (see Romans 8).

Conclusions:
1
11) Present-day Israel is NOT the “camp of the saints” the “nations of the world” gather against in the book of Revelation, neither is present-day Israel now awaiting God (alone) to destroy their enemies (i.e., “the nations of the world”), which gather against them, as the Bible says God himself does: “And when the thousand years are ended, Satan will be released from his prison and will come out to deceive the nations that are at the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them for battle; their number is like the sand of the sea. And they marched up over the broad plain of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city, but fire came down from heaven and consumed them, and the devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur where the beast and the false prophet were, and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever” (Revelation 20:7-10, emphasis added). Present-day Israel (along with “Christian” America) is destroying Israel’s enemies now, today, NOT God. Israel’s enemies today, unlike Revelation 20, are not ALL the Gentile nations but only SOME of the Gentile nations (Palestinians/Muslims).
  2) Satan is cast down to the earth at the first coming (birth) of Christ (see: Revelation 12). Satan is clearly the “accuser of the brethren” in the book of Job who goes to and fro both in heaven and on earth (see: Job 1) until he is cast down to the earth by Michael and his angels (see: Revelation 12). Satan is finally bound and cast into the bottomless pit so that he might deceive the nations no more (see: Revelation 20: 1-6). Christ, at his resurrection, defeated Satan and put him to an open shame (see: Colossians 2:8-15). Satan is loosed only for “a little while” (Greek:mikron”) so that he might deceive the nations once more and gather them together against God, Christ, and God’s chosen people (the Jews, or Israel).
  3) Our mission, as Gentiles who follow Christ, is to “Christianize” the Gentile world and to provoke the Jews (Israel) to envy or jealousy (see: Romans 11:14).

An Urgent Warning: THE SITUATION IN WASHINGTON, D.C. IS FAR WORSE THAN I IMAGINED!

An Urgent Warning: THE SITUATION IN WASHINGTON, D.C. IS FAR WORSE THAN I IMAGINED!

Washington, D. C. 6/21/2011

A.J. MacDonald, Jr.

I am familiar with a newspaper called The Epoch Times, which publishes a special Washington, D. C. edition, from my visits to D. C. The Epoch Times is a group of good, Chinese people dedicated to liberating the people of their great nation and restoring it to its former greatness, which comes only when people follow both God and Nature. To the Chinese people, this is the Tao. To the American people, this is Natural Law, which I, Dr. King, and the Declaration of Independence speak of as THE ONLY WAY TO RESTORE OUR ONCE GREAT NATION.

I WAS ALREADY WELL AWARE THAT THE WASHINGTON POLITICIANS WERE IN BED WITH COMMUNIST CHINA, BUT AFTER READING THIS EDITION OF THE EPOCH TIMES, WHICH FILLED IN THE MISSING DETAILS REGARDING JUST HOW BAD THINGS NOW ARE, I NOW REALIZE THAT WASHINGTON WAS TAKEN OVER, LONG AGO, BY COMMUNISTS: OUR POLITICIANS OF BOTH PARTIES.

Please READ EVERY WORD of the front page "A section" of this DC Newspaper. This paper is published by good people who are trying to liberate the Chinese people by telling the truth about Washington politicians of BOTH parties BEING IN BED WITH THE COMMUNIST GOVERNMENT OF CHINA. I know this is hard to believe but Washington politician of both parties are now and have been for years subverting the US Constitution by arranging crooked deals with Communist China. I knew things were bad, but THINGS ARE FAR WORSE THAN I IMAGINED. I got this newspaper in DC. The paper is available and the paper's "truth telling" is common knowledge on Capitol Hill (both parties). THE WASHINGTON POLITICIANS ARE TRYING TO SHUT THEM UP BY SHUTTING OFF THEIR RADIO BROADCASTS TO CHINA. READ EVERY WORD OF THIS ARTICLE AND THINK ABOUT IT. ASK YOURSELF QUESTIONS ABOUT THE MANY ARTICLES THAT EXPOSE THE CORRUPTION AND TREASON OF THE WASHINGTON POLITICIANS.

ONLY TWO (2) POLITICIANS IN WASHINGTON ARE TRYING TO HELP THIS GROUP: US Congressman Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) and US Congressman Frank Wolf (R-VA)

I AM, AND HAVE BEEN, SAYING THE SAME THING THE PEOPLE WHO WRITE THIS NEWSPAPER SAY: NATURAL LAW (THE TAO) IS OUR ONLY HOPE. JUST AS DR KING AND THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE SAYS.

READ, ESPECIALLY, THE ARTICLE ABOUT SENATOR JOHN KERRY'S LATEST CROOKED PLAN TO SWINDLE AMERICANS ALONG WITH THE ARTICLE ABOUT THE WASHINGTON POLITICIANS KNOWING AND WILLINGLY AID THE COMMUNIST CHINESE GOVERNMENT (CCP) IN DEFRAUDING THE US TAXPAYER. SEE, TOO, THE ARTICLE ON CHINESE PROPAGANDA RECENTLY, INTENTIONALLY, PRINTED IN THE WALL STREET JOURNAL. AS YOU WILL READ FOR YOURSELF, THE SITUATION IN WASHINGTON IS FAR WORSE THAN EVEN I HAD IMAGINED!

WE NEED, NOW, TO ORGANIZE. WE NEED TO WORK TO LIBERATE OUR NATION FROM THE CRIMINAL TRAITORS IN WASHINGTON WHO HAVE BOTH SOLD AMERICA OUT TO COMMUNIST CHINA AND HELPED THE ISRAELI MOSSAD BLOW-UP THE THREE WTC BUILDINGS IN NYC (BLAMING IT ON MUSLIMS) AND THE PENTAGON.

See: Dr. Alan Sobrosky’s (Colonel, USMC Retired) article concerning the high level US military brass being aware, now, that Israel blew-up those buildings in NYC and DC. I TOLD A LOT OF HIGH LEVEL BRASS MYSELF YESTERDAY AT THE PENTAGON. The military is loyal to the US Constitution and the Washington politicians are not. ALL MILITARY SERVICE MEMBERS SWEAR AN OATH TO PROTECT, UPHOLD, AND DEFEND THE US CONSTITUION FROM ALL ENEMIES—FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC. WE HAVE THREE (3) ENEMIES OF THE US CONSTITUTION: ISRAEL, CHINA AND WASHINGTON POLITICIANS. My fear is that the military will take things into their own hands (i.e., a coup d’ etat) and wipe Israel—the innocent (most) along with the guilty (few)—just as we did and are doing with Afghanistan and Iraq. WE CANNOT ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN! WE MUST SEEK JUSTICE NOT REVENGE! ONLY A NONVIOLENT MOVEMENT, SUCH AS THE ONE WE HAVE STARTED (Summer of Justice – 2012 – DC), CAN HEAD THIS OFF! I AM ALSO VERY CONCERNED THAT MANY AMERICAN PEOPLE WILL BEGIN TO BLAME ALL JEWISH PEOPLE FOR THE CRIMES OF A FEW. WE CANNOT ALOW THIS TO HAPPEN!

We are facing a CRISIS OF EPOCH PROPORTIONS AND WE NEED YOU TO BE INVOLVED IN HELPING RESTORE OUR GREAT NATION! PLEASE READ THE INFORMATION I AM POSTING, FOLLOW THE LINKS, THINK ABOUT WHAT WE ARE SAYING, AND JOIN US! GET BUSY WORKING AND SPREADING THE WORD! AMERICA WILL BE FREE, GOOD, AND GREAT AGAIN, VERY SOON!

Peace, Alex

Treason and Sedition in US Federal Law - Why It Is Time NOW For A Revolution In America


The following may help to clarify your understanding of treason and sedition under US federal law.


I am very familiar with federal law (i.e., the US Code), having violated federal law before (e.g., Title 18, U.S.C., Section 248), and I always like to keep-abreast of the fed's latest definition of the words: "treason" and "sedition".


As men who were both treasonous and seditious (against England) the Founder's also made certain that NO ONE IN AMERICA EVER BE ALLOWED TO DO WHAT THE FOUNDERS THEMSELVES HAD DONE: THROW OFF A TYRANNICAL, OPPRESSIVE, AND MURDEROUS GOVERNMENT!


Well, WE aim to do just THAT. Non-violently, of course.


WE DARE THE FEDS TO FIRE THE FIRST SHOTS AT NONVIOLENT PROTESTERS IN AMERICA WHO BELIEVE IN THE PEOPLE'S RIGHT TO THROW OFF BAD GOVERNMENT AND INSTITUTE A GOOD GOVERNMENT IN ITS PLACE SO THAT WE MIGHT LIVE IN PEACE AND SAFETY!


"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."


A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER


A "Clear and Present Danger"


After the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington, Americans pulled together. But Americans still speak out voicing many different opinions. The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution guarantees freedom of speech. And most Americans support the idea of free speech. But since the First Amendment became part of the Constitution in 1791, American citizens have sometimes gotten into trouble with the government for speaking out. This has happened when a speaker was considered "too unpatriotic," "too radical," or "too dangerous."


Who should have freedom of speech? Should it apply only to those who voice opinions most people agree with? Or, should it be for everyone, even for those who hold opinions that most Americans hate?


Also, what does freedom of speech really mean? Does it mean that someone should be able to say whatever he or she wants at any time or place? Or, should speech sometimes be limited by the law?


Sedition Act of 1798


Just a few years after the First Amendment was added to the Constitution, the federal government passed a law restricting freedom of speech. In 1798, Congress passed the Sedition Act. War seemed likely between the United States and its former ally France. Members of Congress were convinced that people sympathetic to France would try to stir up trouble for the new nation.


Congress and President John Adams believed that the Sedition Act would help control pro-French troublemakers by forbidding criticism of the federal government. "Sedition" generally means the incitement of violent revolution against the government. The Sedition Act of 1798, however, went far beyond this. It required criminal penalties for persons who said or published anything "false, scandalous, or malicious" against the federal government, Congress or the president.


Twenty-five American citizens were arrested under the Sedition Act. Among them was a Congressman who was convicted and imprisoned for calling President Adams a man who had "a continual grasp for power." Another citizen was convicted for painting a sign that read, "Downfall To The Tyrants of America." Still another man was found guilty of sedition for saying that he wished that the wadding of a cannon fired in a salute to President Adams would hit him in the seat of the pants.


Despite the arrests and convictions, many people spoke out against the Sedition Act. The state of Virginia even threatened to secede from the United States over this issue. The act was never legally challenged before the Supreme Court. Instead, it simply expired in 1801. By that time Thomas Jefferson, a bitter political opponent of President Adams and the Sedition Act, had been elected President. He pardoned all those convicted under this law.


"Clear and Present Danger"


Another major attempt to regulate freedom of speech occurred during World War I. In 1917, Congress passed the Federal Espionage Act. This law prohibited all false statements intending to interfere with the military forces of the country or to promote the success of its enemies. In addition, penalties of up to $10,000 and/or 20 years in prison were established for anyone attempting to obstruct the recruitment of men into the military. In 1918, another law was passed by Congress forbidding any statements expressing disrespect for the U.S. government, the Constitution, the flag, or army and navy uniforms.


Almost immediately, Charles Schenck, general secretary of the American Socialist Party, violated these laws. He was arrested and convicted for sending 15,000 anti-draft circulars through the mail to men scheduled to enter the military service. The circular called the draft law a violation of the 13th Amendment's prohibition of slavery. It went on to urge draftees not to "submit to intimidation," but to "petition for repeal" of the draft law.


The government accused Schenck of illegally interfering with military recruitment under the espionage act. Schenck admitted that he had sent the circulars, but argued that he had a right to do so under the First Amendment and was merely exercising his freedom of speech.

The issue found its way to the U.S. Supreme Court in the case of Schenck v. United States, 249 U.S. 47 (1919). It was the court's first important decision in the area of free speech. Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes wrote the opinion of the unanimous Court, which sided with the government. Justice Holmes held that Mr. Schenck was not covered by the First Amendment since freedom of speech was not an absolute right. There were times, Holmes wrote, when the government could legally restrict speech.


According to Justice Holmes, that test is "whether the words...are used in such circumstances as to create a clear and present danger." Holmes said that in Charles Schenck's case the government was justified in arresting him because, "When a nation is at war, many things that might be said in time of peace are such a hindrance to its effort that their utterance will not be endured so long as men fight and that no Court could regard them as protected by any constitutional right."


In the Schenck case, the highest court in the nation ruled that freedom of speech could be limited by the government. But Justice Holmes was careful to say that the government could only do this when there was a "clear and present danger" such as during wartime. While settling one legal issue, however, the Supreme Court created others. For example, what does a "clear and present danger" specifically mean, and when should it justify stopping people from speaking?


The Angry Crowd


Another important free-speech case took place after World War II. It was only a few years after thousands of American soldiers had given their lives to defeat Adolf Hitler and the German Nazis. Arthur Terminiello was speaking before an audience in Chicago. His message was hate. He said that Hitler was right in what he did. He claimed that Democrats, Jews, and communists were all trying to destroy America.


An angry crowd gathered outside the hall where Terminiello was speaking. Bricks and bottles soon rained through the windows as his oratory continued.


Arthur Terminiello was later arrested, tried, and convicted for disturbing the peace with his provocative harangue. Like Charles Schenck 30 years earlier, Terminiello appealed his case to the U.S. Supreme Court (Terminiello v. Chicago, 337 U.S. 1). He claimed that he should not have been arrested since his speech was protected by the First Amendment. The city of Chicago, however, argued that the things Terminiello raved about in his speech so angered people that a "clear and present danger" to the safety of the community had occurred.


In 1949 the Supreme Court reversed Terminiello's conviction. (Four of the nine justices dissented.) In the majority opinion, Justice William O. Douglas wrote that "it is only through debate and free exchange of ideas that government remains responsive to the will of the people...." Justice Douglas stated that in a democracy free speech must occur even if it causes disputes, unrest, or "stirs people to anger."


Thus, according to Justice Douglas, "freedom of speech, though not absolute, is protected against censorship or punishment unless shown likely to produce a clear and present danger of serious substantive evil that rises far above public inconvenience, annoyance or unrest."

The Declaration of Independence (1776)


When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.


"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute


Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.


He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected, whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.


In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a

Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.


Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.


We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor."
